President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Dieter Graumann, welcomed a British publisher's plans to print and sell excerpts from Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf in German newsstands, German Der Speigel reported Sunday.

The Jewish leader said he hoped the plans would "go some way to demystifying" Hitler's iconic book.

British publisher Peter Mcgee, no stranger to controversy in Germany, said he plans to publish critical commentaries alongside excerpts from Mein Kampf, which will be available for purchase in Germany at the end of the month.

"It's about time the broader public is given the opportunity to deal with the original text," Mcgee told Der Spiegel.
